Mediterranean diet simplified

What food is in Mediterranean diet

The Mediterranean diet is a traditional diet in Mediterranean countries which is high in vegetable and olive oil consumption. It includes the following :
  • vegetables
  • fish and other seafood
  • small amounts of meat and chicken
  • wholegrains
  • fresh fruits 
  • nuts
  • legumes
  • olive oil
  • red wine in small amounts
It is healthy because:
  • the foods contain high amounts of fibre
  • a monounsaturated fat is the main source of fat
  • full of antioxidants
  • fresh food
  • food is prepared simply
  • herbs and spices are used instead of salt to flavor foods
  • there is less red meat than in a typical western diet
  • there is more fish and fruit and vegetables than in a typical western diet

  1. Thank you for this - is going to be fantastic for helping me with my #zerowasteweek challenge

  2. Seems like more and more people are realising the benefits of eating the mediterranean diet. I basically eat like this but without any gluten and try to minimize grains. It really helps my joint pain and dryness in Sjogren's Syndrome.

    Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating
    it but, I'd like to shoot you an e-mail. I've got some ideas for your blog you
    might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I
    look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  4. Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible.

    However, what most people don't realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

    There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

    The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

    Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

    Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it apparently releases more inflammatory molecules into your body on a consistent basis.

    The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either.

    The ONLY solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

    Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this everyday at the gym.

    Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

    Well, the good news is that I've spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss.

    If you follow the guidelines, you WILL lose your belly fat that has been plaguing you for years. It is a proven system that works time and time again for all of my clients on every corner of the globe that actually apply the information I teach. If you apply it, the results will come. It's really that simple.

    Don't waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.

    Train hard, eat right, and enjoy life!
